Santa Fe police believe an intruder who has recently been peeping in windows and exposing himself to women living alone in the South Capitol neighborhood may be responsible for a similar series of crimes last summer. Heather Rider teaches the Israeli self-defense system Krav Maga, and recently held a workshop for residents of South Cap. She joined Hannah Colton and Dylan Syverson in the studio to discuss self-protection strategies. http://traffic.libsyn.com/ksfrnews/hc-krav.mp3

Because of the move, court will be closed from June 5th, reopening on the 10th.

One woman claims she sought a simple cleaning but Kestler instead removed four of her teeth, resulting in a serious infection. Police say that apart from the illegality of Kestler performing dentistry without a license, there are also health concerns for anyone having received his services.
